MAD ABOUT MARGARET'S 2019

IT is OUR GOAL TO END THE STIGMA AND CHANGE THE CONVERSATION ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS AND HOMELESSNESS, AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.

Mental illness is a wicked problem - there is no single solution. It is interwoven with homelessness, addiction, marginalization, and isolation. In fact, approximately 3 million Canadians, aged 15 and older, experience symptoms of mental illness every year. To help women with mental illness, we need a wicked solution. That solution is Margaret’s and by attending Mad About Margaret’s 2019, you can support our work to alleviate the pain and suffering that mental illness creates for thousands of residents of Toronto. The individuals that your contribution supports are largely marginalized and live in poverty. They are vulnerable and impacted daily by the indignities of homelessness, addictions, trauma, and the devastating stigma of mental illness.  

Stay tuned for information about MAM 2019 in the new year.

"The problem with the stigma around mental health is really about the stories that we tell ourselves as a society."

To empower individuals of varying mental abilities live and thrive in their community, and a society.

OUR APPROACH

OUR STORY

Margaret's Housing and Community Support Services opened its doors in 1984 in honour of the well-known Toronto feminist and activist - Margaret Frazer. At Margaret's, we actively work to uphold the visionary's efforts. We provide a continuum of housing and support services for individuals facing mental health challenges through innovative programming, advocacy, and education. We understand there is a clear link between decent, affordable housing and good health. Safe and stable housing promotes community involvement, decreases hospitalization and improves the quality of life.
